I am so excited to be doing this review! I feel like I have so many things to talk about!
Alicia’s been telling lies. And now they’ve come back to haunt her.
When an old colleague turns up at a party, Alicia comes face to face with the man who has the potential to ruin her perfect family life. He wouldn’t, would he?
In order to keep her secrets, Alicia has to tell yet more lies and when a devastating car accident makes the situation even more dangerous, it’s only a matter of time before everything falls apart. Can secrets really stay hidden forever?
A baby lies abandoned amongst the rubbish; her tiny face as white as alabaster, her body as stiff as a miniature doll.
A young prostitute lies beaten, her figure lying like a mannequin on the frozen concrete, her blood spilt, her life ebbing away.
As DC ‘Charlie’ Stafford and her boss DI Hunter struggle to identify the victim from the violator their hunt brings them to the crack houses of Lambeth, littered with damaged people, their lives scarred by tragedy and violence, most broken beyond repair.
As further lives hang in the balance Charlie must enpower the weak to speak out against those who seek to cause harm.
But can a broken doll ever truly be mended; or will the wounds of the past, fashion the events of the future? Continue reading “Review: Broken Dolls by Sarah Flint”
A cheerleader with a reputation. A ghost who wants justice. Two lives bound together until the killer is found.

When her best friend’s body floats ashore Brushy Creek, Sonora is haunted by the corpse-like spirit. The incessant ghost refuses to leave Sonora alone. She must risk death and sanity to find her friend’s killer. If Sonora isn’t careful, she’ll be the next victim. Continue reading “Review: Girl Gone Ghost by Dawn Husted”
Today I am here with a book review.
For Mia Hieskety, surviving high school meant focusing on exams and avoiding stupid parties. After breaking up with the only boyfriend she ever had, dating was off the agenda. That is, until Thanatos came along.
Inexplicably drawn to Thanatos, she’s determined to find out who he is and why he insists on wearing gloves to school. Something is off about him. And it’s as if she can feel him when he’s near.
Without warning, she’s thrust into a sinister world and discovers a truth that she never expected. When a supernatural connection puts Mia’s life at risk, she doesn’t know who to trust—especially Thanatos. But what if she’s in love with him?
Bold, irresistible, and beautifully written, Scythe of Darkness explores a star-crossed destiny in a whole new way. Don’t miss this hot YA urban fantasy!

I received an ARC of Scythe of Darkness from the author herself, and I am so thankful that she reached out to me! This is set to come on Tuesday, June 13th so make sure to pre order your copy on Amazon!
I want to first talk about this cover!! I am normally not a fan of people on the covers of books, but for some reason I am really digging it! Maybe it’s the skull?
Mia has been through a lot, but I liked that this didn’t make her an overly hard, distrustful person. I liked Mia almost immediately, but the way she developed as the story progressed made me love her!
This story has that sort of insta-love element that normally makes me cringe. However, I felt the way this was done was a bit different and I didn’t mind it as much. Mia recognizes the attraction right away but instead of acting on these feelings, she’s suspicious of them.
I have never read about death in this way, and it is something that I would like to see more of. For me, it is a very different character element in the paranormal romance genre. I LOVE that I was able to read this so fast. I needed something that I could read and enjoy without having to reread previous sections in order keep up with the story. Everything flowed together and if not for my toddler harassing me, I would have been able to read this a lot quicker!
My only issues would be that the beginning part of the book was a little bit confusing. You were given a few details that didn’t seem necessary, but ended up a huge part of the plot later. The way the ending was written works as a standalone, but I feel it is a better set up for more books… *hint* *hint*
I overall really enjoyed this book and gave it 4/5 stars! I would recommend this to someone that is looking not only for a quicker read, but also wants a different, darker kind of paranormal romance! You can try out the first 3 chapters on Dawn Husted’s website for free!
Thank you so much for visiting!
